Abstract

This paper, firstly, demonstrates the internal problem of Tillich’s theology in general and theological method in particular in Tillich shifting his logos Christology to Spirit-Christology. The motif “particularity-universality” as a key notion is not well-balanced throughout its theological development. Secondly, this paper proposes that the doctrine of Trinity, well-articulated in Tillich’s 1913 work but finds little attention in his mature work, may provide a more fruitful and embracing symbol to release the tension within the notion of particularity-universality and keep its balance in a dialectical way.
